Pikes Peak Ascent and Marathon

When: Aug. 21-22 2010

Going to be in Manitou Springs this afternoon? Watch out for vomit. Pikes Peak Marathon weekend ( has arrived, with its two separate races. On Saturday, Ascent runners begin at Memorial Park in Manitou Springs at 7 and 7:30 a.m. and finish at the summit of Pikes Peak (13.32 miles) around 1:30 p.m. No worries there. But at 7 this morning, runners will begin the marathon at Memorial Park, and around the 5 p.m. finish-line closing time, when they return to Ruxton and Manitou avenues, some will literally leave it all on the pavement. — Lea Shores
